The Spurs kids have done it again, another final, and another piece of silverware. 2-1 against Sporting Lisbon in the Tournoi International de Football de Monthey in Switzerland on Sunday.

That's three major youth tournament finals this season (we won the the Eurofoot in Belgium in August and were runners-up in the Dusseldorf International in March).

The team:

Spurs: Button, Smith, Hutchins, Kasim, Martin, Butcher, Rose (Hutton, 45), Livermore, Pekhart (Olsen, 65), Mason, Townsend. Unused subs: Jansson, Mtandari, Obika, Fraser-Allen.

Pekhart, Olsen, Rose, Townsend.....Hopefully this lot will save us a few bob in the transfer market. Unless Damien 'Chequebook' Comolli spots another £16M bargin.

Truly we have managed to emulate Arsenal in at least one aspect - bringing in lots of talented youngsters who are three years later offloaded into lower midtable Premiership clubs and Championship clubs.

Danny Rose to play for Cheltenham or some such in five years time, mark my words.

Our talented youngsters that get off-loaded to mid-table clubs are rarely bought.

We save that fate for the local English kids.

I'll be happy with at least two of them coming through. My money is on Pekhart (who isn't a true Spurs production) and Rose.

Anyone know how good Martin is?
